The other night I attended a gathering of internations and was shocked to see how much animosity and bad feelings there are between some senior members. I introduced myself to a member and asked him if he knew of another member, and he expressed the foulest language toward the other member that I was shocked and felt personally insulted. I joined internations because I wanted to belong to a group and meet friends. I did not like to see the group division nor the clear separations between members. I will seriously reconsider my membership when its up for renewal if things don't change. I was hoping as a new member to benefit from the advantages of belonging to this group.
